What could be better than a little Cherry Buttercream Frosting to go with your Cherry Cordial Cupcakes? I can’t think of a better way to finish off those delicious cupcakes. This is basically a simple buttercream frosting with a little maraschino cherry juice and almond extract added in. It is a simple way to change the flavor.
Cherry Buttercream Frosting
1 cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
4 Tbls. maraschino cherry juice
1/4 tsp. almond extract
red food coloring, optional
Beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add the cherry juice and almond extract. Slowly add the powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. If you would like a more red color, simply add a few drops of red food coloring until desired color is reached.
